Welcome!

TeemPlay is a new gaming company, welcome to our fundable page. The video above and sections below explain our intentions to make the world better by building games. Also check out our website TeemPlay.com.

What is TeemPlay?

TeemPlay is founded on the evidence that video games are capable of contributing to a better world. Considering the success stories of Foldit and Eyewire, we believe in the limitless ability of video games to allow for the union of otherwise divided problem solvers.  In other words, to maximize our collective creative potential, TeemPlay is building a game.

The name of our game is NU. Simply put, NU is a building game. A player will be able to make and use simple patterns to create virtually any structure they can imagine. This means players can build together and create high fidelity virtual models.

NU will be an open market where players will be able to build incredible virtual models and trade them freely. Some models will be made just for fun - houses and castles like the ones you might see in The Sims and Minecraft.

Other models will be made for profit - an architectural blueprint of a house, a digital model of a new car engine design, even recreations of historical landmarks which can be used for education.

Fun

Serious fun

Profitable hobby

TeemPlay seamlessly supports all three.

How does your support help TeemPlay?

TeemPlay reflects what we can do together. We want to make the world better with NU and TeemPlay can use as much support as you give. The general goal of this Fundable campaign is to begin gathering the resources and support we will need to develop NU.

The primary goal with this Fundable campaign is to raise the money we'll need to attend business plan competitions and game development conferences this spring. Your monetary contributions will get us there, and your support can help us win. If we meet our goals, the money we raise through Fundable and business plan competitions will fund our development of NU into a proof of concept.

While the Fundable money is incredibly helpful to building NU, what we want the most is your support. The more support TeemPlay gathers the easier it will be to make NU. As the company moves forward and pursues other fundraising avenues the support of the network from Fundable will give TeemPlay credibility.

The story behind TeemPlay

TeemPlay began as a long-shot idea for Becket, Willis, and Steve. Each of the founders are long time video game players who have spent thousands of hours dreaming about making video games - and many times that number playing video games. As time went on Becket, Willis, and Steve decided their calling was not to make any one game (as awesome and fun as that would be), instead they made it their purpose to empower the masses through video games. Ascribing to the beliefs of Jane McGonigal and other video game visionaries, the three founders decided to make a game that could have a real impact on the world.

Originally Becket, Willis, and Steve didn’t have the knowledge or abilities to even consider making NU but the past two years have changed everything. Through constant market research, game development research, startup networking, and college - the founders are finally able to set a plan in motion that can make NU a reality with the skills to see it through. Additionally the tools to create a game such as NU were significantly less developed and less accessible just two years ago. The increased accessibility of powerful game engines which makes all of this possible has only happened in the past year, particularly the growth of our main development tool, the Unity Engine.  Now that the tools and experience are finally in place to create NU, TeemPlay has come to Fundable seeking the support and resources to make NU into a reality.

Specifics about how NU would work:

Making a game where players can build incredible virtual models and trade them freely sounds awesome, but can it be done? The short answer is yes, but this section is designed to address some concerns and questions you might have.

Building games already exist. Think of Minecraft or The Sims. The main purpose of NU is to create a mix between building games like these and high fidelity virtual modeling software like 3D Studio Max and Unity. These tools allow users to build incredibly complex digital models which are capable of fulfilling the technical demands of NU, but they aren’t simple to use.

The question then becomes whether or not a game will be able to support the advanced options of more sophisticated modeling and editing software. However, there is clear evidence that games can teach players complex interfaces and actions. Consider World of Warcraft, a game with hundreds of unique spells and abilities. As a player progresses through the game, new abilities are slowly introduced so the player is never overwhelmed. In contrast, when someone first learns Photoshop they are given hundreds of buttons immediately and expected to read a manual.

By teaching in the context of gameplay, NU will be able to support the advanced functionality of high fidelity virtual modeling software while maintaining an atmosphere of serious-play.
